Girls Write Out

Makeup can only do so much, you know? I hate to admit it but I'm getting older I've been blessed with good genes for hair and don't have to color it yet even though I'm 57. But I've got age spots on my face that I'm always trying to cover up with makeup. But it never covers it right! So aggravating!

So though I never thought I'd say this, I've been thinking about a chemical peel or laser or something but I have no idea what works and what doesn't. Any advice for me? I want something that's fairly gentle too because I'm not fond of pain on my face. LOL But remember I live in Indiana. We're mostly country hicks and most of us know nothing about this kind of thing. LOL I'm sure I could go to a dermatologist and ask but I'd like to be prepared with a little knowledge. And is there any cream that would do it?

Didn't you read Kristin's Split Ends book? There was a scene in it that made me vow to never mess with my skin.

Coleen,... thanks for sending me the link to your site this morning. If you can hold on a little bit, there is a 'painfree' product about to be launched, which I'll let you know about... Totally natural

So now she wants to look 20 so everyone will think I am a dirty old man running around with a young girl. I see how it is, but she still looks great to me.

I am so jealous that you are 57 and you don't have to color your hair! I am 39 and have had gray hair since my 20's.

You're right, Dave, she does look great. We women are always wanting to turn back the clock. I wish our culture wasn't so beauty obsessed.

i've had gray hair since my early 20s, but i refuse to color it. i'm a bit paranoid about putting chemicals on my head. i have just embraced my gray hair. arbonne might have a product for age spots. i love there products.

Colleen, first I think you are beautiful. I wouldn't do anything, but aside from that. Have you tried the mineral foundations? It seems to cover up better and do more. But then I rarely wear make-up so what do I know.

My grandmother would say "age spots are just God's way of saying "way to go"."LOL She always saw age as a banner that said "I made it this far, why hide that". But then I had a great grandparent who could pee while walking, never met her but according to stories she was something else!

Anyway, whatever you decide I wish you well. But I still say you are beautiful just as you are.

FRAXEL. Look it up. It's good for age spots, but it's kind of expensive, you'd probably have to go to Indy to do it, and I think it's a series, not a one-time thing.

Make an appt with a dermatologist, they can do wonders these days. Not that you need it. I'm totally not above vanity and am hoping that the thread lifts of today are nothing like what they can do when I need one. LOL

At the same time, I care less and less about vanity, so I wonder if by the time I'm there, I wouldn't rather go on vacation.

Oh Wendy, you're so sweet! :-)

I love the mineral makeup. it does cover it some. and maybe it's just me because I notice it. :(

I'll check that out, K, thanks!

Colleen, I tried the mineral makeup which was GREAT, but it breaks my lips out!(Raw, more like it.)

I have an awful spot on my cheekbone near my hairline, so if you come up with something, let me know (you go first...)

I dread going to the dermatologist.

I am 66 and my hair has not turned gray, a few strands around my ears, but I would not do anything for my face, you are beautiful just like you are, be yourself, enjoy this age, no matter what you do or how much money you spend you can not make yourself any younger.
